The YF-26ER Swan is a fictional aircraft that appears exclusively in Airforce Delta Storm. It is a late-tier plane, available near the end-game. It is one of many strange, fictional aircraft that appears in AFD Storm and nowhere else in the series.
The plane itself appears to be a heavily modified X-36. It now has vertical stabilizers, and a much larger profile compared to the X-36. The wingspan is noticeably different as well, and it no longer has front canards. The rear fuselage and engine placement are reminiscent to that of Ace Combat 3's R-101 Delphinus.
This plane has very impressive stats. Many of its stats are high, with the only exception being Attack. As a result, this plane is a very strong plane, and a good choice if you don't want to use the likes of the MiG-1.44 MFI or the F-22 Raptor.
Interestingly, in the PAL version of the game, the Speed stat of the plane was nerfed significantly, going from being Very High (the bar going past the fourth line) to being Medium-high (only going past the third line). Thus, in the PAL version, its usefulness is, of course, diminished slightly.
|Defense:||Very high (5200 HP)|
|Speed:||Very high (!)|
- (!) - Speed stat is Medium-high in the PAL version.
Enemy Appearances (Missions)
- This is the only aircraft to have its stats visibly decreased in the PAL version of Storm; every other plane with a stat change is unanimously an increase in some way.
- Note: Technically, the F-15S/MT also had a decrease in its stats (its max speed is lower in the PAL version) but the stat table did not change to reflect this.
